Setting Notification SMS

(available since version 2.10)

To Send SMS notifications you need to setup SMS configuration details.

Go to Settings -> Business Settings -> SMS settings

from here we can set up SMS for most of the vendors having support for REST API, most of the support it. If not then check with your provider

Go to the REST API documentation of your vendor. Contact your vendor if you can’t find it.

Let us take an example of NEXMO.

Example One: Setting up SMS for NEXMO

  1. Go to documentation: https://developer.nexmo.com/api/sms
  2. You will find “Send an SMS”. Here is how it looks like.
  3. In the right side we have Example request. From the request you can see:
    URL: https://rest.nexmo.com/sms/json
    Send to parameter name: to
    Message parameter name: text
    Request Method: POSTParameter 1 key: from
    Parameter 1 value: Acme IncParameter 2 key: api_key
    Parameter 2 value: Parameter 3 key: api_secret
    Parameter 3 value: Input all this details and try sending SMS.
  4. You can view SMS status in nexmo account after login.

A similar configuration can be done for most of the providers.

Example Two: Setting up SMS for others

Let the api structure is

http://your-sms-website.com/api/sendmsg.php?user=<username>&pass=<password>&sender=<sender_id>&phone=<phone_number>&text=<text_message>

So the configuration will be as follows

URL: https://rest.nexmo.com/sms/json
Send to parameter name: phone
Message parameter name: text
Request Method: GET
Parameter 1 key: user    Parameter 1 value: <username>
Parameter 2 key: pass    Parameter 2 value:  <password>
Parameter 3 key: sender   Parameter 3 value: <sender_id>

Setting Notification Email

Go to Settings -> Business Settings -> Email settings

Add all the Email SMTP configuration details & it will work.
